Breathtaking images of Saturn revealing the planet's signature rings were collected over a two month period. These pictures were taken from unique angles allowing for above and below revelations of the planet's true majesty.
Implications - These stunning photos were taken by the international Cassini spacecraft, which was launched back in 1997. As the Cassini spacecraft orbited the planet in a highly inclined orbit, the view it had of the planet was unlike any we have ever seen. It took about $3.3 billing to fund the Cassini mission, a joint effort by NASA and both the European and Italian space agencies. The spacecraft is being manages by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.
